      Early warning signs that indicate the possible contamination of a firing range may not appear obvious. Yes, there is the puff of smoke after the discharge of weapon which is usually swept away down range by the employment of an effective air system. In open ranges, the winds serve the same purpose.

  • Protecting Wet Lands and Water Bodies from Shooting Range Activities: Silent Hazards

      Open firing ranges pose greater risks to health than expected.
